Katakuchi Kinmaki cold sake set < Shirokesshou >
This product is a set of Mino ware sake cups, which is an earthenware handcrafted by artisans expressing both “traditional beauty” and “modernity.” The earthenware is coated with gilded pure gold on the surface, while expressing the warmth and beauty of true craftsmanship from its curved design. This is handmade by craftpersons throughout all processes from the molding process. The beauty of the soft curves and the profoundness of the expression can only be achieved using “gaba” (slip) casting. The product, especially the Katakuchi container with a one-side spout, has an “ekubo,” a small dimple that makes it to easy to hold even though the product has a wider shape. Because of its shape, insightful design and glazed pure gold achieved only by handcrafting, the Katakuchi container with a one-side spout is very suitable for special occasions such as celebrations and is an excellent item for spending special moments.
